Marie Cissé (Babetida Sadjo) works as the head chef at a retirement home in small-town France.
Though she seems relatively well adjusted; Marie harbors a shameful secret—she’s a former child soldier.
Her easy day-to-day life spent caring for residents, hanging out with her co-worker and best friend Nadia (Jennifer Tchiakpe), and teasing a potential new romance is disrupted by the arrival of Father Patrick (Souleymane Sy Savané), a priest whom she recognizes from a terrifying episode in her homeland.
As he further endears himself to the residents and staff, Marie is forced to decide how best to deal with this reminder of her troubled past.
